It was a beautiful Halloween here in California today. Riding home from
work, I got a really nice comment from a guy on a full suspension bike on
the trail: "Now THAT'S a unicycle!" That was the good part. A little
later, I looked ahead and saw a 5 or 6 year old boy riding alone on his
bike. He looked up and saw me and promptly crashed into a wall. I was
about 150' away and when I got to him he was starting to move, and had
that panicked look, not believing there can be so much pain in the world.
He was holding his unhelmeted head but not bleeding, looking like he
wanted to cry really hard. Soon his dad rode up and said, "Oh, how're you
doin'? Just the head this time?" Yow.
Another guy I talked to on the way home had just seen Fat Tire Fury at a
Santa Cruz theater and really loved the section with Kris. Unicycling is
going mainstream?! Maybe someday people won't be so shocked by the sight
of a unicycle that they fall on their head.
---Nathan, off for unicycle trick-or-treating!
